    Ok, what do you recommend?


    Abolish tribalism. Education for girls and women. Create more economic opportunities for the young. License the Imam's and regulate the madrassas. That's just off the top of my head but there's plenty of things that coulda, shoulda and woulda been done or at least tried but weren't before we went to war in the ME and inspired thousands to become jiihadists. I have doubts that genie can ever be put back in the bottle.

    You know that the only way for any of that to happen, is to kill all the terrorists? We've seen how the Taliban views education; especially when it comes to females.

    Ok...fine...tell us what you believe will work.

    That's why I put "abolish tribalism" at the top of my list. Islam is never going to change until they give up the tribal mentality.

    So, similarly, can we say moderate Muslims aren't to blame for their government failing to eliminate ISIS?


    For ISIS, tough times as it seeks to regroup - CNN.com

    Shalst I post the 20+ links that outline ISIS may be losing some skirmishes, but they continue to spread and grow, NOT just is Syria and Iraq?

    BAGHDAD (AP) The immolation of a Jordanian pilot by the Islamic State group has brought a unified outcry Friday from top religious clerics across the Muslim world including a prominent jihadi preacher who insisted the militants have gone too far.

    Still regretting the day the decision was made that news programs had to compete on ratings. What a stupid decision, and what a terrible fall out that we are now suffering from now.

    It's not tribalism so much as it's the Salafist movement. Suppression of Salafism and encouragement of mainstream Sunni, as well as Sufist or Ibadist beliefs, would go a long way to stabilising the ME and de-radicalising the population.

    I'm interested in the terrorists just leaving US and innocents alone. Don't really a crap they do in their own, or in their own little corner of the world, or to the fools that follow them.

    Couple of problems with that tho. These Militant Islamic Fundamentalists keep exporting their attacks to other nations and locations, and, as more recently and logically demonstrated by Sen. Tom Cotton:
    SEN.TOM COTTON (R-ARKANSAS): OK, now I want to explore the so-called risk balance between recidivism of released terrorists and the propaganda value that terrorists get from Guantanamo Bay. How many recidivists are there at Guantanamo Bay right now?

    BRIAN MCKEON, DEPUTY UNDERSECRETARY FOR DEFENSE POLICY: I'm not sure I follow the question, there are --

    TOM COTTON: How many inmates at Guantanamo Bay are engaged in terrorism or anti-American incitement?

    BRIAN MCKEON: There are none--

    TOM COTTON: Because they are detained. They can only engage in that kind of recidivism overseas.

    Now let's look at the propaganda value: How many detainees were at Guantanamo Bay on September 11, 2001?

    BRIAN MCKEON: None.

    TOM COTTON: How many were therein October 2000, when al-Qaeda bombed the U.S.S. Cole?

    BRIAN MCKEON: Zero.

    TOM COTTON: What about in 1998 when they bombed the embassies [in Kenya and Tanzania]?

    BRIAN MCKEON: The facility was not open before 2002, Senator.

    TOM COTTON: What about 1993 and the first World Trade Center bombing?

    BRIAN MCKEON: Same answer.

    TOM COTTON: And 1979 when Iran took over our embassy? Or 1983 when Hezbollah bombed our Marine Baracks in Lebanon? The answer is zero.

    BRIAN MCKEON: Correct.

    TOM COTTON: Islamic terrorists do not need an excuse to attack the United States, to attack us is what they do, they attack us for what we are.

    It is not your decision. It is a political promise the president made on his campaign. To say [closing the base] is a security decision based propaganda value that our enemies get from it is a pretext to justify a political decision.

    In my opinion the only problem with Guantanamo Bay is there are too many empty beds and cells there right now. We should be sending more terrorists there for further interrogation to keep this country safe. As far as I'm concerned every last one of them can rot in Hell, but as long as they don't do that they can rot in Guantanamo Bay.
